Matthew Harriman Memorial

Matthew Harriman was a gentle soul.
Not ever asking for much.
He mostly just wanted a piece of your time.
Did he live a perfect life? No. But do any of us?
Matthew lived his remaining days in the woods off of Maple Ave in Claremont, NH. Not too many people knew he even existed. In reality, all of us are not that far from one circumstance that could put us in the same situation as Matthew. Sure he may not have made the best choices in life but does that mean he was any less a human being than you or I? I'd argue the makes him just like us.
My friend Ralph Tutela spent a good amount of time with Matthew and was trying to help him get his life back on track. Here's a video of them singing Amazing Grace.

Please donate and help Matthew receive a memorial service with the same respect and dignity that you and I would want. The extra money will go to help purchase supplies (ie. jackets, gloves, boots, hand warmers, blankets, etc) for the homeless in Claremont. Your donation is a simple way to show compassion for the homeless and that Matthew will not be forgotten!
